Recent cooking adventures: Mango-jalapeño salsa, Greek potato, fried pork, and biscuit pizza

Mango-jalapeño salsa and tilapia

I haven’t posted much about my recent cooking, so this’ll be as quick look at a few things. First up, mango-jalapeño salsa! This was pretty simple with mango, jalapeño, cilantro, red onion, lime juice, and some seasoning. Here it’s served on tilapia on a bed of mixed greens, but it goes great with chicken too as well as chips!

Greek potato

For lack of a better term, I was just calling this a Greek potato. Not much to this really – just a Hasselback potato with feta and honey, but it’s totally delicious.

Marinated pork collar butt

Farm Direct had some cheap, delicious marinated pork collar butt, so I bought it a few times because it was easy to use with other things.

With onions, bell pepper, and some eggs, it was perfect.

I should go buy more actually.

Biscuit pizza

I’m probably too old to share something so dumb, but I liked these anyways. These pizzas were made with Pillsbury Grands! biscuits. At first I used a whole biscuit per pizza, but I revised them to use half a biscuit per pizza. Less calories, less carbs, more tastiness.

I’m glad Anela shared the video with me from BuzzFeed Food!

Bonus veggies!

Pork chops for dinner

Pork chops

Delicious. Pork chops, potato, and Brussels sprout. The pork chops were super cheap too. I usually stick with beef because I don’t have to worry about undercooking it, but this worked wonderfully.

Baked banana with chocolate peanut butter candies

You can’t forget dessert. I put milk chocolate peanut butter bears (essentially peanut butter cups) in the sliced banana before baking it. I had some Albertsons butter pecan ice cream with it too.
